Buttefly gardens

Inspecting the stems and leaves of milkweed plants for monarch butterfly eggs and caterpillars has become part of Lauren Cole’s weekly routine. Cole, the naturalist at Chief Logan State Park, is trying to reverse the species’ recent population losses by planting milkweed and other plants in areas that otherwise would have to be mowed.
